Hello there, Mr. Thursday.
We have almost made it to the end of the first week of school at our house. It has been a CRAZY week! We have had Open House at the Middle School for Carson, we have a parent meeting for 4th grade for Cutter tonight, and are in full swing with soccer and football season. We didn't really ease in this year - we JUMPED!
So, if you are in the same boat with all the craziness and need a little pick me up drink, this post is for you!
Iced Chai Tea Latte!
A few years ago my friend, Emily, got me hooked on chai teas. At the time, she was staying home with her two little baby girls and so I would pick up coffee and head to her house for a visit. Her order was always a Chai Tea Latte. She let me try hers and I was HOOKED! SO GOOD!
My favorite places to get them in town is at Nikki's Coffee Shop and Big Country Coffee. If you are local, try them. You won't be disappointed.
However, now I often make my own at home. You guys are probably way more on top of things than me but just in case you haven't seen this yummy goodness, I'm sharing it today!
You mix this Tazo Chai Tea with either milk
half and half. I most often mix mine with milk ( I use 2%) however for a treat I use the half and half. On this day, I had plenty of calories still allowed so I splurged and mixed mine with half and half.
You pour equal amounts of the Chai Tea with the milk/half-n-half. I usually mix 1 cup of each.
I use my Ninja blender single serve to mix it up and then pour over ice.
I like to make mine in the afternoon. Yesterday, I made one to take with me for school pick up. It makes a great treat while you wait!
It's heaven in a cup!
And it makes me SO ready for Fall, y'all!
I saw on Instagram that Starbucks released their Pumpkin Spice Latte this week. EEKS! I'm so excited! It's my all time favorite Fall drink! Hot...I can't drink an iced PSL. It just doesn't seem right. 😉
